In which Olympic events do women and men currently compete directly against each other?
Generally, most sports segregate men’s and women’s competitions to ensure the sport is competitive and more enjoyable to both play and watch. However, not all sports completely segregate male and female competition. In the equestrian events of the Summer Olympics, women and men compete directly against each other. No one cares if the horses or their riders are male or female—they jump, event, and prance on equal terms. Men and women also compete together in sailing although it is only in one particular class, the Nacre 17. Other classes are segregated by sex.
